Sidenote: All the Wix Business and eCommerce plans include your own domain name, SSL encryption and are 100% ad-free.

What does each Wix premium plan include?

Wix domain

Combo comes with a domain name if you pick a yearly subscription. You can get .com, .net, .org, .biz and a few other extensions (see screenshot). Please note that it’s only free for the first year, the regular price is around $14.95 per year.

Basically, Combo has everything except an online store option. The only difference between this and the Unlimited plan is storage, bandwidth and the included video hours.

Our recommendation: In our opinion Combo is all you need for a regular site without ecommerce (even though Wix heavily promoted Unlimited and Pro).  If you do ever come close to exceeding your Combo plan’s storage or bandwidth limits, Wix will inform you well in advance (should be good for about 3,000 monthly visitors). Upgrading plans is always possible and existing funds will be credited. For average sites, Combo’s data limits are more than enough.

The Pro plan includes a logo that you can create with Wix Logo Maker. But to be honest, we can’t think of any scenario where the Pro plan makes much sense (unless you absolutely need the 20 GB of storage).

The VIP plan’s main selling point is the priority support. If you have a question it’ll be pushed in front of the line – cheeky. Be aware that this plan doesn’t include the online store module. You’ll need one of the Business plans for that – read below.

The Wix Business & eCommerce premium plan is the tier you should use if you want to open an online store.

Additionally, you are also granted access to some of the most interesting Wix premium apps like Wix Hotels, Wix Restaurants, Wix Bookings or Wix Music. If you are going to upload loads of video to your Wix site, this plan also increases the video storage. And in case you want to step up your marketing game, Wix has a complete suite called Wix Ascend.

Sidenote: Keep in mind that you can test the online store and premium apps in the free plan too. Compared to its competitors, the online store is pretty low-cost. You’ll find more information in our Wix eCommerce review.

What about Email Accounts?

One thing Wix doesn’t solve particularly well is email accounts for your domain name. You can sign up for G Suite through them but you’ll have to pay $6 per month. Compare that to Jimdo where you get email accounts for a lot less than that (starting at only $12 per year).

Another alternative is to purchase the domain name through a third party (e.g. Namecheap) and get your email accounts from there. This will cost you around $10 per year.

Final thoughts – Is Wix good value?

Here’s the short answer: It can be very good value but you’ll need to find the plan that’s right for you.

For most non-ecommerce users, Combo is probably the best option as it’s ad-free and you’ll get your own domain name. Unless you are expecting hundreds of daily visitors right from the start you should forget about the other website plans for now. Remember, you can always upgrade later!

If you’d like to open an online store, we would recommend starting out with Business Basic as this is the cheapest plan that comes with ecommerce features. We like that Wix also offers monthly payment options as many other website builders only have yearly subscriptions available.

FAQ

Do all Wix plans include hosting?

Yes, hosting is included. There won’t be any extra cost for you.

How can I cancel my Wix account / website?

Cancelling a Wix premium package can easily be done from within your account as you can see in the screenshot:

wix cancellation

For further details please go to Wix’s support pages and search for “canceling”.

Is there a money-back guarantee?

Yes, there is a 14-day “no questions asked” money-back guarantee for all premium plans. Please note that this refund policy doesn’t apply to domain names.

Are there any coupon or promo codes for Wix?

Currently, there is an official promo code that you can use to save 10% on Wix Unlimited and higher! Find it here.

Here’s a guide of how to redeem a Wix promo code.

How much is Wix Bookings?

The basic version of Wix Bookings is free (see our review). The paid plan allows you to receive payments online, offer group bookings and will also let you send out reminder emails. Here’s an overview of all plans with Wix Bookings included:

wix bookings prices

 

Why doesn't the eCommerce plan have unlimited bandwidth?

We don’t know! However, 10 GB is a lot when you keep in mind that Wix is supposed to be for small businesses. Let’s say the average visit costs 2 MB of bandwidth then you could have up to 5000 Visitors per month. If this still won’t be enough, you should consider a platform like Shopify that you can scale.

Are there any other eCommerce plans?

Yes, Wix has ecommerce-specific plans that are offered only to existing Wix online store owners. The Wix eCommerce plan (Basic Store) is the best option to start your online store with, but whereas the bandwidth is unlimited, the storage is limited to 20GB.

Higher plans offer more storage: Unlimited Store comes with 35GB, VIP Store with 50GB and Super Store has 75GB of storage. These plans also include some credit to use Shout Out, Wix’s newsletter tool.

The Super Store and VIP Store plans have VIP Support and an SEO Expert site review to help with optimization. It’s right for those that either need a lot of storage (> 35GB) or would like to have priority support and expert SEO guidance.

Finally, the Super Store plan comes with a nice perk: you can use the Wix Business Solutions. These are apps that you can integrate into your website, and are meant for hotels, restaurants, musicians or site owners needing to take bookings online.

Wix Store Plans pricing

 

How many products can I add to Wix Ecommerce?

Is there a discount for non-profit organisations (NGO)?

Yes, charitable and non-profit organizations are eligible for a free Combo plan. It needs to be renewed every year.

To set it up, Wix requires a copy of your organization’s tax exemption certificate or registered charity number.

When I try to upgrade Wix I am seeing prices that are much higher. Why?

You probably have an app installed such as Wix Bookings. When you click upgrade it will automatically add the app to your purchase price.

To avoid this, scroll to the bottom of the upgrade page and click this link:

wix upgrade

What is SiteBooster – do I need it?

SiteBooster is included from the Unlimited plan and therefore you might wonder whether you actually need it.

It’s basically a listing service that will add your local business to about 15 directories such as Apple Maps, Google Maps, Yelp, Foursquare and a few others.

While it’s a convenient way to add your business to all these services at once, this can also be done manually by yourself (which would allow you to settle with the slightly cheaper Wix Combo plan).

If you are indeed a local business and you value your time a lot, then it’s probably a good idea to have SiteBooster do the listings for you.

What is the Wix Enterprise plan?

Most likely it’s just a sales tactic called “price anchoring”. Next to a really high price the other packages don’t look quite as expensive anymore. We don’t think anyone really needs a Wix Enterprise package.
